the federal investigation that cost patraeus his job but tonight national security was compromised. >> i have no evidence at this point from what i have seen that classified information was disclosed that in any way would have had an impact on our national security. lou: concerning questions on whether the petraeus story should have come up before the presidential election, president obama said the fbi has its own protocols on how they proceed. for more on all of this, the "a-team". let me start with you. the idea that susan rice somehow comes across in the president's statements today as being a puppet without a mind of her own or any indivial responsibility as an envoy of the presidentor representatives of the u.s. government. >> this is a woman who clearly would like to replace secretary of state hillary clinton in that job. no shrinking. she was perfectly able to defend herself. i'm sure she was speaking off the set of talking points. the question is, one of the many questions, did she know when she was speaking that there was contradictory and permission? lou: and it is -- i'm not sure t

. >> david patraeus testified before a closed hearing on the investigation concerning the consulate attack. following the hearing committee members spoke to reporters. >> so far seven hours of hearings, we have spent the last two hours with former director patraeus. he laid out his view, which was very much appreciated. he answered a large number of questions. we still have two additional hearings. hopefully the preparations of the findings and a public hearing. >> big two this was a terrorist attack within 24 hours? >> i will not comment now. we will most likely comment on those things in our final report. i think we have a ways to go yet. i think they are trying to be very careful and cautious. >> [indiscernible] >> since you asked that question -- the roles of our committee are you cannot use something that you learned in a classified session. i can give you my assessment based on questions, my investigation, that what susan rice did was use talking points, pulled out originally by the cia signed off by the intelligence community, those were requested by the house committee. the intelli

statement. who is the heat? >> patraeus appears to -- the seventh from petraeus appears to be amended. what he did stay based on th news reporting is that the statement that was sent out, the riding said katie suspected. the change was indications of tremists. this goes to a larger narrative that there was not a terrorist attack, and if you listen for thpresident's words of the united nations he talks about a mindless attack. mindless activities. well, no. it was not mindless. it was preplanned. here's the president trying to make the point that it was not of planned terrorist act. something about the way the president is approaching this and all his supporters have got behind in to try to sell is narrative to the united states. it just wasn't true. lou: top house armed services democrat and embrace -- adam smith, rather, as we just saw talking about the statements by ambassador rice saying he does not understand how a terrorist attack can be both spontaneous and preplanned. it's just bizarre what is going on here. the 80 logical, if you will, mandated logic of all is appalling . >> dem

for general patraeus and general clapper but something went wrong here and it seems like there was influence coming from outside and that should never happen when dealing with the intelligence communities and to me the on place it could have been coming from was the administration itself. megyn: we'll find out as you continue to probe into a disturbing story. mr. chairman of the homeland security committee, thanks for being here. all the best, sir. after billions of dollars in advertising, direct mailing, rallies, when wound up almost exactly where we were before election day:president obama in the white house and the democrats holding the senate and the republicans holding the congress. karl rove is live here three minutes away. emotional testimony at sentencing. take this guys picture off. no one wants to look at him. you know who it is. his name is jerrod laughe lough. today survivors of that tragedy are getting their first chance to confronts him face to face. a bad sign for victims of superstorm sandy. thousands of folks without gas, heat or food left out in the cold yet between. >> it'
